Batho Pele (a Sesotho expression for “people first”) was an initiative of the Government to transform service delivery in the public sector. These principles were published in the White Paper on the Transformation of the Public Service in October 1997 (South Africa: 1997). In this White Paper eight principles were identified that would serve as indicators of effective, efficient, and people-oriented services. These principles were indicative of and attempted to address limitations in service delivery in public services. These limitations and shortcomings developed over years due to political, economic, and social factors and were therefore developed to focus on access to services and inclusion of the client as an important, respected, and informed role player who can expect services of a high standard while getting value for money.
